The Fair and Impartial Policing Patrol Course (2 day)

This one-day 8-hour course is being hosted on February 22 & 23. The Fair & Impartial Policing (FIP) curricula is based on the science of implicit bias. Implicit biases can impact what people perceive and do, even in people who consciously hold non-prejudiced attitudes. The implication of the science of bias is that even the best law enforcement officers may manifest bias because they are human, and even the best agencies will have biased policing because they hire humans. The FIP curricula are founded on the following fundamental principles: The FIP Training Program for Patrol Officers is an 8-hour program that applies the modern science of bias to policing; it trains officers on the effect of unconscious bias and gives them the information and skills they need to reduce and manage their biases. The curricula address, not just racial/ethnic bias, but biases based on other factors, such as gender, sexual orientation, religion, socio-economic status, age, and more.
